I have started feature request as you have seen

Sorry don't get what you mean ... Is it not like today ?

Kind of, let say you rename VeryLongVariableName into i then every
ocurance of this diff shift text in one line. So after few changes lines
are in offset even more then 100 chars, effectively looking like you
look on two totaly differnent lines ...

However don't see any real way how to make it better while keep readability.
